This news article stating OECD releases new data on nanomaterials, is brought to you by ECHA.



The OECD has started the dissemination of hazard information on the following 11 nanomaterials in IUCLID format:


    • Fullerenes;


    • single-walled carbon nanotubes;


    • multi-walled carbon nanotubes;


    • silver;


    • gold;


    • dendrimers;


    • silicon dioxide (six different forms);


    • nanoclays;


    • titanium dioxide (six different forms);


    • cerium dioxide; and


    • zinc oxide.



The new information is the outcome of an experimental programme where 11 commercially viable nanomaterials have been used to generate results from 780 studies relating to their intrinsic properties. The work has already given significant input to the specific amendments to the existing test guidelines and generated numerous nano-specific (eco)toxicological data. It will continue to be a cornerstone of the work around risk assessment of nanomaterials.
